Happy Bold Birthday!

Hello! I have successfully finished my first full week of a card a day! Woo Hoo! Next week will be tricky as we are heading down for our first dance competition of the year, but I'm determined to make it work! I might have to skip Friday next week as we are leaving some time in the morning, but that's ok!

This is for several challenges:

#1 - Splitcoast Stampers Free For All Challenge to make a child's birthday card. I think the bold colors on this card look kid friendly to me!

#2 - Card Makin' Mamas also has a challenge to make a birthday card!

#3 - The sketch comes from this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge.

#4 - And finally the color scheme is for the ColourQ which is to use Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, and Cherry Cobbler. I have to admit that Tangerine Tango always throws me for a loop! It's just not a color I would normally gravitate to, but I'm proud that I made it work on this card!

The stamp used is from the Occasions Mini Catalog called Create a Cupcake (#121982 clear/#121915 wood mounted). I used the new Build a Cupcake Punch (#121807, also in the Occassions Mini) to punch it out. The bottom "wrapper" is stamped in Cajun Craze ink on Tangerine Tango paper and mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals. The icing is stamped in Not Quite Navy ink on Baja Breeze paper.

The ribbon is the new 1/2'' Seam Binding in Baja Breeze (#122331). I absolutely LOVE this ribbon! The button is from the Designer Big Buttons pack called Sweet Stitches (#122302). I used the linen thread to tie the button to the bow.

I finished off my card with some basic rhinestones!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
